Smelling smoke or seeing sparks is an indication that you need to call for emergency electrical services. Don’t try to fix the problem yourself; you could end up making it worse. Our experienced Perth electricians can quickly identify and fix the problem, so you can get your life back to normal.

Power failures can also be a cause for emergency electrical services. When the power goes out, you may not be able to see what’s wrong with the wiring or circuit breaker. Again, it’s best to call an electrical contractor who knows what they’re doing.

By calling for emergency electrical services when you need them most, you can avoid further damage and keep your home or office safe and functional. Follow the steps below in any electrical emergency situation.

  • Isolate the Power – Locate your electrical switchboard and look for a switch labelled “MAIN SWITCH” and turn this off immediately.

  • Ensure Property is Fire Safe – Often in electrical emergency situations, fire is involved from electrical arcing. Safely walk around the property to ensure that there is no fire burning as a result of the electrical emergency.

  • Contact Western Power – Call 13 13 51 to speak with the Western Power emergency electrical faults line. They will arrange for someone to check the problem and if it is a neighbourhood blackout, you can find that out here also.

  • Contact your local electrician – Western Power won’t be able to work on your property, they only repair up to your switchboard. After that, you will need a qualified electrician that provides emergency electrical services to come and repair any property faults or repair your issue.
